My dad took me to watch United play before I can remember and from being a young lad we used to go to the top of the road to watch them bring home trophies, what felt like, every year.
I have a season ticket in the Sir Alex Ferguson stand and started writing about United in 2006 when I set up The Republik of Mancunia blog. I also write regularly for Red News and The Metro.
How hard would it be to do a quick Wikipedia check? Blackett is born in 1994 while James is born in 1993!!! Heights of ignorance!
in your article today about RVP you wrote "The Dutchman has a strike rate of 0.53 goals per game, which ranks him higher than several strikers above him in the top 10, including Frank Lampard (0.3), Teddy Sheringham (0.35), Les Ferdinand (0.42), Robbie Fowler (0.43), Andy Cole (0.45), Michael Owen (0.46) and Wayne Rooney (0.46)."
last time i checked, lampard is not, and has never been, a "striker", regardless of his position on that list. he's a goal-scoring mid. not the same.
For a Manchester United season ticket holder you would think you would have the rules of mid-season transfers and cup-ties figured out.
Scott, please do your research;
'How Manchester United Will Line Up Against Olympiakos'
Perhaps consider that since Juan Mata is cup tied, he will not in fact feature
"Ferguson wasn't hands-on in training, so Meulensteen resumed this role."
you mean "assumed"? "resumed" would mean meulensteen was hands the hands on guy on, then someone else was, then meulensteen was that guy again. "assumed" would mean that since ferguson wasn't hands on, meulensteen took on that role.
assume: verb: take or begin to have (power or authority)
resume: verb: begin to do or pursue (something) again after a pause or interruption
come on mate. smh.
